The film plays mostly as an uneasily satirical thriller.

This twist-heavy World War II drama would play as an absurdist comedy if the director wasn't so dead set on excluding just about any trace of humor from his self-serious project.

A banal World War II thriller dependent on contrived role reversals.

Neither the plot of this farfetched caper nor Murenberger's approach to it, do any kind of justice to what is still, whether some people like it or not, one of the most terrible episodes in human history.

An awkward blend of anti-Semitic atrocities and identity-swapping absurdity, the World War II drama "My Best Enemy" struggles to find a convincing tone.

While the film generates some mild suspense and the period re-creation is convincing enough, the twists eventually become more contrived and preposterous.

My Best Enemy bleeds suspense like a pin-pricked tire. It wants to be clever, but survivor tales bring with them too much muck.

Strained attempt at WWII tragi-comedy isn't funny.

The script relies on too many unlikely twists, but Bleibtreu manages to sell them all.
